Tuesday Morning Man: Joey Barton!
Spotted this handsome guy on my friend Kenneth in the 212′s site last night.
He’s 30-year-old English footballer Joey Barton and I think he’s pretty dreamy.
But he’s been a bad boy over the years – some serious anger management issues. His career and life have been marked by numerous controversial incidents and disciplinary problems that are pretty off-putting and even resulted in a short term in jail at one point.
Still, his pro-gay rights beliefs lead me to belief there is hope for him moving forward. He said in an interview earlier this year that the lack of any openly gay players in English professional football is “a subject that’s quite close to my heart” because his uncle is gay.
Barton said he believe there will be an openly gay player “within the next 10 years.” He wants his generation’s legacy to “help not only change the game for the better, and change the teams that they played in, but also change the culture and change the society and the football clubs that they played at.”
